What goes on in plumbing systems may not be readily something you can observe. But you can minimise clogging your drain pipe, especially your sink drain, by being vigilant about what goes down and acting on your blocked drains when you notice them instead of waiting until the last hour.

While clogged drains like your sink drain and bathroom sink are inevitable, this is no reason to take the problem for granted.

A clogged drain pipe or sewer line is one of the most cumbersome plumbing problems you can encounter. If left unattended, drain clogs can create havoc on your plumbing system. You may even be forced to tear apart your sink completely.

When you notice the tell-tale signs of a clogged drain, such as nasty smells like sewer gases, loud gurgling noise, or water draining slowly, check out for the common causes of blocked drains and items stuck in there.

Here is a list of the most common items, foreign objects and other substances that cause blocked pipes and main sewer lines:

  1. Grease and Fats (Cooking oil)
  2. Hair (Especially long hair)
  3. Coffee Grounds:
  4. Lingering Food / Food Scraps
  5. Paper and Cotton Goods
  6. Cigarette butts
  7. Flushable wipes and baby wipes
  8. Sanitary items
  9. Bath Bombs
  10. Makeup
  11. House Paint
  12. Pet Waste (cat litter)
  13. Hard Water Deposits
  14. Lost items

Our Solution

A well-maintained drain is essential for the smooth functioning of any household and uninterrupted water flow. However, improper disposal of items and unintentionally dropping them can cause blocked drains. There may also be undetected leaks and problems you may not be able to see or notice immediately.

Changing a few habits, getting your hands a little dirty, and spending more time and attention on your home’s drains may save you a lot of money down the road.

Here at Fixed Today Plumbing, we’re always available to provide the best solutions for your blocked drains. We can repair or clear your drains from your kitchen sink drain, clogged P trap, bathroom sink drain, etc.

Since our professional plumber uses the latest tools and equipment, we can detect even difficult blockages and leaks. Our Sydney blocked drain specialists carry CCTV cameras, jetting equipment, pipe locating equipment, and electric eels. Not only that, but we also kill tree roots through root treatment. Tree roots invading your pipes can also be a big culprit in blocking your drainage system.

Below is our step-by-step guide on how we best deal with obstructions in your drains of any size and severity.

Step 1

We conduct a thorough initial assessment and testing to determine the source of a blocked drain.By checking the drain blockages, we can determine the best action plan, whether it’s enough to use a plunger or utilise a high-pressure jet blaster for your blocked sewer drain cleaning.

Step 2

We use a high-pressure jet blaster to remove the obstruction in a blocked drain. Jet blasting is the most efficient method of clearing blocked drains and any significant obstacle. A jet blaster is best for clearing stormwater, blocked sewer drains and blocked drains in Sydney.

Step 3

After the obstruction is cleared from your blocked drain, we use our CCTV drain inspection camera through the piping to accurately report the pipework’s condition. If you damage your pipes, our CCTV drain inspections will identify them.

Step 4

We may recommend pipe relining, especially for blocked internal drains. This is a no-dig pipe repair.

Your damaged pipework has been repaired without extensive excavation and is done through a pinhole opening. Pipe Relining is excellent as it costs a fraction of a regular extensive excavation. It can be completed half the time and get your property back to its original state.

Fixed Today Are Your Professional and Licensed Plumbers

You can use a plunger to cover the drain opening and give a good plunge; pour more hot water or chemical drain cleaners (be sure to use rubber gloves to protect yourself). You can also unscrew the compression nut on both sides of your P trap and loosen it. Reach into it with a grasping tool so you can clear out the stuck item obstructing the passageway, like a lost item. But don’t settle for DIY techniques to unclog your drains, like your clogged sink and blocked sewer pipes.

More than pouring hot water and baking soda and cleaning your bathroom sink and drain plug, we have the experience and knowledge to deal with a major problem in your drains, to clear the items stuck in your blocked drain and unblock them with our highly effective drain cleaning procedures. We’ve earned a good reputation with more than ten years of experience serving Sydney, its homes and businesses, providing drain blockage services, and we want to keep it that way. You can ask around, or we’ll provide you with references and a portfolio of our projects.
